March for Our Lives – 1 Year Anniversary

Edna Chavez

Empowering Our Youth! 

“March For Our Lives LA” was held on March 24, 2018. Youth and Families marched for gun and weapon awareness and reform and to demand the end of mass shootings in our schools.

Edna Chavez, from our Slate-Z Partner Community Coalition, gave a speech at the Washington D.C. March on behalf of our South Los Angeles Community to raise awareness regarding gun violence and the empowerment that our Youth receive from Mentorship Programs, Mental Health Resources, Paid Internships, and Job Opportunities.

We’re proud to stand in Support of our Youth, and have strengthened our resolve to continue with our Mission to provide social services and programs that empower individuals, and promote community, respect, and self-determination for all.

College Corner Campus Tour

On Saturday, February 23, 2019, College Advisors took All Peoples Youth to Pasadena City College for a college tour. Youth were able to learn about campus history, admission requirements, financial aid and more!

“One of the most compelling and important reasons for taking the students on college tours is so that they could see the college firsthand – the classrooms, dorms, and library that the students would be in for the next four years in the event that they were to commit to this college,” says Deisy Huerta, Youth Director at All Peoples Community Center. “Students have an opportunity to see the buildings inside and out, including classrooms, dorms, dining halls, gyms, and libraries.”
